Came for the weekend and just wanted to do some little things. My boys loved the park. The tree top excursion was great for all of us. We bought the ticket with the meal ( which was only an additional $5.) and feel like it was a great deal. We did all the rides but had we planned better we... More

What a beautiful place to visit! The carving is a must see. The whole park is beautiful and the views are amazing especially the ones from the top of the mountain. We had such an amazing time, a blast. There is quite a bit of walking, pretty steep a lot of the time so be prepared and comfortable and do... More

Great place to visit with Kids and Without kids. The hike to the top is awesome., you can also ride the cable car the view is breathtaking. Not far away from Atlanta and good food places within the park. Well maintained and abundance parking space. The laser show is a must watch.

To our surprise, we got a discount because of our late arrival, we only paid 17$ each. The grounds were decorated for fall and it was adorable! Themed pumkin displays, Despicable Me, Wizard... More

The view of the Atlanta skyline and the surrounding area is absolutely breath taking. There is not very much open during the week at this time of the year but it is worth the trip to Stone Mountain to view the carving. The museum that gives the information on how the carving was completed is very informative. The laser show... More

I loved the carving and the tram ride to the top. When on top of the mountain you can see forever and it is breathtaking! The only thing that I was disappointed in was the hours that the stores were open and the fact that they did not offer the laser show on that Friday evening. But other than that... More

we took the sky-tram up the mountain, this is a must, it's just unbelievable..When you first enter the building you are met by a gentleman named Jack and he is superb in telling you anything you want to know about the mountain and more. people are very friendly.

Interesting monolith. Enjoyed the cablecar ride to the top. Unfortunately, on this Tuesday in Sept the ONLY things in the entire park that were open was the museum and the cable car. Very disappointed that the train wasn't running and the plantation house was closed.
